The Camputers Lynx was an 8-bit computer that experienced a shorter-than-most life in the home computer marketplace, mostly in the UK and Europe. Camputers released the Lynx 48k in March of 1983, a competitor to the ZX Spectrum. Powered with Z80A CPU, the computer was quickly repackaged as a 96k version in September of 1983, with current 48k owners required to send their machines in for a mechanical upgrade. A later 128k version was released in December of 1983. John Shireff designed the...

Kaypro Corporation, commonly called Kaypro, was an American home/personal computer manufacturer of the 1980s. The company was founded by Non-Linear Systems to develop computers to compete with the then-popular Osborne 1 portable microcomputer. Kaypro produced a line of rugged, portable CP/M-based computers sold with an extensive software bundle which supplanted its competitors and quickly became one of the top selling personal computer lines of the early 1980s. While exceptionally loyal to its...

The Watara Supervision, known as the QuickShot Supervision in the UK, was a monochrome handheld gaming system released in 1992 to compete with Nintendo's successful Game Boy. Launched at $49.95, the Supervision's cut-throat pricing meant the system suffered from a poor quality screen and lack of well-received game titles. Numerous versions of the game system were produced by third-party marketing and distribution partners as a result of Watra's outsourcing business methodology. A total of 68...

The Sorcerer was one of the early home computer systems, released in 1978 by the videogame company, Exidy. It was comparatively advanced when released, especially when compared to the contemporary more commercially oriented Commodore PET and TRS-80, but due to a number of problems including a lack of marketing, the machine remained relatively unknown. Exidy eventually pulled it from the market in 1980, and today they are a coveted collector's item. Having recently sold his share of the seminal...

In its normal configuration, it is furnished with an 8-bit Z80A microprocessor. However, an optional plug-in module is available that converts the machine into a dual 8/16-bit processor with the capability of running both CP/M-86 and MS-DOS. If this option is ordered with the basic machine, it is installed internally. We think this is the configuration that will...

While there are earlier laptops and even earlier CP/M laptops, the Bondwell Model 2 came late enough that there was good enough LCD resolution (640x200) to support an 80x25 line display; CMOS chips were advanced enough to allow long battery life (up to eight hours), and 3.5 inch floppies were already...
